I purchased a binding machine from Office Depot a few months back, and I just spent today binding several notebooks, planners, etc. I had so much fun!
Here is mine, getting ready to make a drawing pad:
Do you have a binding machine? I didn't think it would be cost effective, but am finding that it will definitely save money in the long run.
I gave an overview of it, as well as a tutorial on how to use it on my blog, if you'd like to read it. :)
Here is the first project I made with it :) It is a reading log. I replaced the notebook pages with a printed log today.
